Oops! "President Bush has lost control "

Go read Josh Landis.

The flood gates are opening and President Bush has lost control of his isolate-Syria policy. Congress is defying the President and heading for Damascus. Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida met today with Asad in Damascus. Others are on their way, including John Kerry, D-Mass., Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., and Arlen Spector, R-Pa.

This is his last stand on holding back the tide waters, to shame them on the human rights front, but the damage is done for Bush. Congress will begin to put its shoulder to foreign policy. Not just democrats are going, republics are headed toward Damascus as well. Arlen Spector wrote an impassioned article in the Washington Quarterly in the December issue, explaining why he would head for Damascus and how he was able to get things accomplished in past visits. Here are some articles.

Lots more.
Thanks, Nur.
